Arguably the most difficult career move anyone can make is the transition from being one of the team to becoming the team’s manager. You go home on a Friday as a team member and come back into work on the Monday as the new Manager!
This is often quite a daunting situation for many a new Manager as they struggle to find their way in the new order. They become not only responsible for their own output, but are now responsible for the performance, productivity and motivation of others as well.
The GBS Introduction to Management course has been designed for either newly appointed Managers, or for existing Line Managers who have had no formal training in managing people.
This course provides the skills, tools and techniques needed to manage the transition successfully and starts the journey in becoming both a confident and successful Manager.
